Being a part of Cirque du Soleil is a fantastic thing because you get to travel the world while impressing people from many countries. As the biggest theatrical producer out there, Cirque du Soleil needs its performers to be the best in the world.
Thankfully, Gaukhar Akhmetova-Atherton is a seriously skilled performer, so much so that she was able to work at Cirque du Soleil for around six years. But even if she has kids, it doesn't mean that her awesome stunts should end. In fact, her kids can join her. Read on!
This incredibly flexible woman became part of the Cirque du Soleil when she was only 17 years old.
"Varekai" told the famous story of Icarus while "Iris" took place in Los Angeles, California, and gave a whole new meaning to the artful cinema.
Andrew Atherton is a British gymnast, so they obviously have something awesome in common. Moreover, they have two kids named Kamali and Kaysen.
But even at such a young age, she already looks fit enough to be a performer in her own. Here, she's already assisting her mother.
It's good to know that Kamali is always there to help her little brother out.
Aside from continuing her passion, she is able to share her skills with her kids who are surely proud of her achievements.
Of course, small steps should be taken, and she is not forcing her to be like her. Kamali too wants to be like her mom.
One of the best things about them is that they prioritize the health of their kids over anything.
After all, who wouldn't want to have as awesome a life as their mom had? Gaukhar is a hand balancer, a contortionist, and most importantly, a wonderful wife and mother.
Gaukhar's career in Cirque du Soleil might be over, but her passion is not and she can still have as much fun as when she was still just 17 years old.
